Liam, Stephen Smith Arrested in Brawl, Deny Accusations

by David P. Greisman

Boxing brothers Liam and Stephen Smith were arrested on July 26 and accused of assault following a fight in the street that left one man injured outside of a gay nightclub in Liverpool, according to the Daily Mirror.

A third man was also arrested. All are out on bail, the newspaper said.

“There was a fight last night, me and Liam were there. Neither of us hit anyone,” Stephen Smith wrote on Twitter on July 28. He soon added: “We weren't fighting with anyone, never mind a gay lad.”

Liam Smith tweeted: “For the record, there was a fight, we was there an got arrested, never threw a punch, never took a punch. The fight wasn't gays either.”

Liam, a 26-year-old junior middleweight, is 17-0-1 with 7 KOs and is coming off a sixth-round knockout of Jason Welborn in a bout that took place on the same day as the alleged brawl.

Stephen, a 29-year-old junior lightweight, is 20-1 with 1 KO and is coming off an eight-round points won on July 12 over Pedro Navarrete.
